Typically when girls say this in movies I feel like it always has to do with them finding the love of their life. In this case the love my life is no man, but instead Hinkle Fieldhouse and most of all my school, Butler.
Yesterday was the most insane day of my life. There’s no other way I can think about explaining this besides doing a timeline for yesterday or January 19th.
6 AM: Woke up to get ready for College Game Day!
7 AM: Made it to Hinkle to help with College Game Day
8 AM: Doors opened for students
10 AM: College Game Day show starts for ESPNU
11 AM: College Game Day show starts for ESPN
8 PM: Make it back to Hinkle
9 PM: Game starts vs Gonzaga
1130 PM: Finally leave Hinkle after storming the court
Being able to experience everything front row yesterday is something I will always be grateful for. There’s no way in describing what all of us in Hinkle were able to experience yesterday. It’s something that still keeps each and every one of us in awe. I’ve watched the game twice more since then and still get nervous every single time in those last 4 seconds. As I always say though, it’s not a Butler game unless I have the feeling of a heart attack.
Yesterday was so much more than a basketball game. It made me realize so much more. I was able to meet Gonzaga’s Executive team of Kennel Club which is the equivalent of our Dawg Pound. They had nothing but nice things to say about the Hoosier hospitality and Butler way. It made me so proud to be part of Butler. It was amazing to see how hyped the crowd was that’s how every game should be.
I really am the luckiest girl. I love this school, and I can’t wait for so many others to experience what this school has provided for me, not just in basketball but in so much more. It just so happened that last night the nation was once again to see Butler do it again. This is no magic this is just the Butler way, and maybe a little Hinkle magic
